Global propagation of air pressure waves and consequent ocean waves due to the January 2022 Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai eruption
Dogan, Gozde Guney; Yalçıner, Ahmet Cevdet; Annunziato, Alessandro; Yalçıner, Bora; Necmioglu, Ocal (2023-01-01)
© 2022 Elsevier LtdOn January 15, 2022, the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai volcano's huge eruption generated tsunami waves globally due to an unusual source in this unique event: fast-traveling air pressure disturbances origina...
Development of a site selection methodology for run-of-river hydroelectric power plants within the water-energy-ecosystem nexus
Temel, Pelin; Kentel Erdoğan, Elçin; Alp, Emre (2023-01-01)
Even though water-energy systems and ecosystems have complex relationships, regional energy policies seldom con-sider this connection. The current regional energy policies are developed primarily based on technical and soc...
Impact of local site effects on seismic risk assessment of reinforced concrete bridges
Ozsarac, Volkan; Ricardo, Monteiro; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Calvi, Gian Michele (2023-01-01)
In most practical applications of performance-based earthquake engineering, the local site characteristics are considered simplistically, and soil-structure interaction effects are ignored. Within such a conventional appro...
Narratives of Project Risk Management: From Scientific Rationality to the Discursive Nature of Identity Work
Green, Stuart D.; Dikmen Toker, İrem (2022-12-01)
The dominant narrative of project risk management pays homage to scientific rationality while conceptualizing risk as objective fact. Yet doubts remain regarding the extent to which the advocated quantitative techniques ar...
Effect of Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) parameters on the accuracy of crack measurement in building materials
Oytun, Mert; Atasoy Özcan, Güzide (2022-12-01)
Terrestrial Laser Scanners (TLS) have gained momentum in identifying cracks and deformations. Although TLS efficiency has been recognized over time, the scan data quality is contingent upon various parameters (e.g., materi...
Probabilistic approach to assess URM walls with openings using discrete rigid block analysis (D-RBA)
Pulatsu, Bora; Gonen, Semih; Parisi, Fulvio; Erdogmus, Ece; Tuncay, Kağan; Funari, Marco Francesco; Lourenco, Paulo B. (2022-12-01)
This study aims to improve our current understanding of the seismic assessment of load-bearing unreinforced masonry (URM) systems by proposing a probabilistic computational modeling framework using the discrete element met...
Investigation of layout optimization for offshore wind farms and a case study for a region in Turkey
Kaya, Baran; Oğuz, Elif (2022-12-01)
In this paper, the focus was to develop an optimization tool by using mathematical layout optimization methods applied to increase the energy capacity or reduce the cost of anoffshore wind farm. For this purpose, two wind ...
Multidimensional Governing Equations of Matrix Flow Component of Subsurface Stormflow as Function of Bedrock Surface Geometry
Kavvas, M. Levent; Tu, Tongbi; Ercan, Ali; Chen, Z. Q. (2022-12-01)
Generalizations of incompressible and compressible Navier–Stokes equations to fractional time and multi-fractional space
Kavvas, M. Levent; Ercan, Ali (2022-12-01)
This study develops the governing equations of unsteady multi-dimensional incompressible and compressible flow in fractional time and multi-fractional space. When their fractional powers in time and in multi-fractional spa...
Seismic collapse safety based optimization of steel Moment-Resisting frames
Gholizadeh, Saeed; Hasançebi, Oğuzhan; Eser, Hasan; Koçkaya, Okan (2022-11-01)
Structures must have a reasonable seismic safety margin in order to ensure life-safety as well as to prevent structural collapse caused by earthquakes. On the other hand, the cost-efficiency and economy of structures are i...
Exploring pattern of complexity in mega construction projects
Bilgin, Gizem; Erol, Hacı Hüseyin; Atasoy Özcan, Güzide; Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (2022-11-01)
Purpose Megaprojects are known as complex projects that involve high levels of uncertainty. This interpretive study explores and portrays perceived complexity in mega construction projects by lived experiences of project m...
Predictive kappa (kappa) models for Turkey: Regional effects and uncertainty analysis
Altindal, Abdullah; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül (2022-11-01)
High-frequency attenuation of ground motions is commonly characterized by the kappa parameter. kappa and its value at zero distance, kappa(0), are critical parameters for site characterization, ground motion simulations, a...
High temperature exposure of alkali-activated coal fly ashes
